I've been tanking for the last month or two on my paladin (been retribution, been holy, wanted to try to former 'red haired child') and I'm loving the experience. The guide is roughly accurate though I would question the need for Retribution aura. Once you hit 300+ spell damage in plate and a decent amount of block you're generating ridiculous amounts of threat. I've broken 1.2k TPS with ease using Kara and Gruul gears, and I haven't even maxed out my gear from those sources. That is using Blessing of Sanctuary and Holy Shield along with SoR on an target judged with Wisdom. The reason for JoW is that as your ability to reduce damage taken increases for the 'lower' content like Kara the less mana you're recovering from Spiritual attunement. I don't ever use Retribution Aura since the extra 26 x 190% threat it generates from successful hits on me always seemed less helpful other options like Devotion (1-1.5% more physical mitigation), Concentration or various Resistance aura's where appropriate.All in I would suggest that, given how easily a tankadin generates threat, Retribution Aura should be the last thing you'll need :)
